Secret of Einstein's Genius

Einstein's and his son's ex-
planation have points of co-
incidence. Both emphasize
the influence of time. Hans
Einstein says his father was
extraordinary because if he
couldn't find a solution one
time, he would try a second,
a third, d- fourth and a fif-
tieth time. Albert Einstein
said he learned to think be-
cause he had to spend more
time thinking in order to
Brilliance or genius in-
creases with the increase of
time applied to work. So time
is really a kind of salve pro-
moting genius.
All of which falls in line
with Einstein's theory of rel-
ativity which made the world
regard the element of time in
a new light. Before Einstein,
the world of physics did not
have much regard for time,
but Einstein held that time
was something hard and sub-
stantive like space. Time was
a fourth dimension. Perhaps
it is a main, if not the sole
dimension of genius.

Lubavitchers Plan
Summer Visits

the 25th consecutive year
some 200 senior Lubavitcher
students are spending their
summer vacation time visit-
ing Jew i s h communities
throughout North, Central
and South America, and Eu-
This program, referred to
by many as the Jewish
"peace corps," is one of
many instruments created by
the Lubavitcher Rebbe,
Rabbi Menachem M. Schneer-
son, to reach out to as many
Jews as possible, wherever
they are.
The students, aged 18-24,
have volunteered three to
four weeks of their summer
vacation period to visit the
various Jewish communities.
Traveling in pairs they will
visit large cities, small towns
and hamlets, where they will
contact local Jews, rabbis
and communal leaders, and
visit synagogues and educa-
tional institutions. They will
meet and talk with Jews on
the streets, in shopping cen-
ters and at work.

"Three passions, simple
but overwhelmingly strong,
have governed my life: the
longing for love, the search
for knowledge, and unbear-
able pity for the suffering of
mankind. These passions,
like great winds, have blown
me hither and thither, in a
wayward course, over a deep
ocean of anguish, reaching
to the very verge of despair."
Bertrand Russell

to Aid New York Jewish Poor

federal grants totaling al-
most $500,000 to help the
Jewish poor in New York
City were announced by Sen.
Jacob K. Javits (R., N.Y.).
One grant of $300,000 will
provide legal services for the
poor in the Brooklyn Jewish
community and the other
grant of $198,542 will coor-
dinate and set up programs
for the poor.
Javits, speaking at a press
conference in his office here,
said the funds will come from
the Office of Economic Op-
portunity. If the programs
are successful, they will be
funded by other federal
agencies if the 0E0 goes out
of existence, he said.
The money was made pos-
sible by a new law, spon-
sored by Javits and Rep.
James H. Scheuer (D., N.Y.),
which provides funds for
areas not reached by the reg-
ular poverty programs or. for
poor people living in areas
not designated by the fed-
eral government as povetry


Creativity Based
in Israel: Katzir

TEL AVIV (JTA) — If the
Jewish nation seeks any cul-
tural, moral or national mis-
sion, this can be done only
through the return to Eretz
Israel, President Ephraim

session of the jubilee conven-

The president said that Is-
rael is becoming more and
more the national cultural
center of the Jewish nation,
"and I am convinced that
ultimately the Jewish true
national creativity w o u l d
emerge from Israel. Jewish
creativity would be possible
only when the Jewish nation
will be in its homeland."
Focusing on changes in hu-
man life due to the develop-
ment of technology and sci-
ence in the era of automation,
Katzir said that the socio-
economic changes "in the
pluralistic society we live in
require a reevaluation of the
values of the Labor Zionist
movement, and maybe of the
values in general, with which
the world used to live until
Katzir repeated his theory
that in order to prevent a

golem from dominating its
creator "we must return to
raising the socialistic, human
and practical values of the
human race."
